Introducing Intercept X

Top Recognition from Industry Experts

Harness the power of a deep learning neural network

Drive threat prevention to unmatched levels. The artificial intelligence built into Intercept X is a deep learning neural network, an advanced form of machine learning, that detects both known and unknown malware without relying on signatures.

Deep learning makes Intercept X smarter, more scalable, and higher performing than security solutions that use traditional machine learning or signature-based detection alone.

“Since deploying, it has stopped 400 new ransomware attacks and we’ve had zero ransomware infections.”


“One of the best performance scores we have ever seen in our tests”

Maik Morgenstern, CTO, AV-TEST

“Intercept X uses a deep learning neural network that works like the human brain… This results in a high accuracy rate for both existing and zero-day malware, and a lower false positive rate.”

ESG Lab Report, December 2017

“Intercept X stopped every complex, advanced attack we threw at it”.

Stop Ransomware

CryptoGuard in Intercept X blocks all known ransomware on the planet. It utilizes behavioral analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology available.

Exploit Prevention

Intercept X denies attackers by blocking the exploits and techniques used to distribute malware, steal credentials, and escape detection. This allows Sophos to ward off evasive hackers and zero-day attacks in your network.

Root Cause Analysis

Detection and response technology provides complete visibility of how the attack got in, where it went, what did it touch, and recommends what you should do next.

Detailed, forensic-level analysis illuminates the root causes of attacks and their infection paths, and offers prescriptive guidance to help remediate infections today and bolster your security posture moving forward.

Malware Cleanup

Intercept X includes the industry’s most powerful malware cleaner. While most virus cleaners simply remove offending malware files, Sophos Clean provides forensic-level remediation by eradicating malicious code and eliminating nasty registry key changes created by malware as well.

Synchronized Security

Synchronized Security simplifies and unifies defenses with real-time intelligence sharing between your endpoints and firewall. This means you get better protection against advanced threats and spend less time responding to incidents.

  • Automatically isolate infected computers
  • Instantly clean-up malware
  • 100% visibility of all apps on your network

Sophos Central

Intercept X is integrated into Sophos Central, the intuitive cloud-based console for managing all your Sophos Products. No servers to build—just log in to download the agent and configure all your policies from one place.

Complement Your Existing Antivirus

Intercept X works seamlessly with Sophos Endpoint Protection, or it can be used to augment your existing endpoint security or antivirus software, giving you next-generation deep learning malware detection, anti-ransomware, and anti-exploit technology.

Don’t take our word for it. See for yourself:

Our proprietary testing using Sophos Labs data showed that Intercept X was 62% better than traditional endpoint protection products and 43% better than other next-gen competitors when blocking malware that has never been seen before (the worst kind of malware).

But don't take our word for it. We are so confident in our technology that we want you to try it yourself. We created a “Testing Guide” that details how to test any endpoint product against zero-day malware so you can see the results yourself. If you are interested in running your own test let us know and we'll show you how to validate these claims yourself.
